The North American Lake Management Society (NALMS) respectfully invites you to sponsor our 41st International Symposium. The Virtual Symposium will be held from November 15-19, 2021.

NALMS’ Symposium attracts an international collection of 500–600 lake management professionals, academia, and citizen attendees. The Symposium promotes the exchange of lake and reservoir management science, produces material for NALMS’ high-quality publications, provides a rare opportunity for networking, as well as an opportunity to recognize excellence in the field of lake and reservoir management.


Reasons to Sponsor the NALMS Symposium

Targeted Quality Sessions
Our Symposium Sponsors associate their products or brands with quality while pinpointing a targeted audience. The Symposium has a reputation for providing the highest quality sessions to a targeted field of lake and reservoir management professionals, academia, and interested citizens across a wide range of lake management topics.

Premium Attendees
Our Sponsors extend their brand visibility to an audience of 500–600 premium attendees. NALMS leads the way in lake and reservoir management education and has a large geographic reach extending from North America to an international community that draws upon influential consumers, community leaders and business decision-makers within the lake and reservoir management field.

Enhanced Sponsor Image
Our Sponsors build upon brand identification and strengthen their corporate image through an association with NALMS, our valued members, high-quality publications and programming, and the superior sessions and events at our Symposium.

Thank you for your interest in sponsoring the NALMS symposium. If you have any questions about sponsorship you may contact us at
